Derived from the Georgian word ლაჟვარდი (lazhvardi) meaning "azure", which is primarily used in Georgian poetry and literature in order to describe the colour of the sky. However, there are also sources that say that the word means "lapis lazuli" in Georgian, which makes sense, since the word is most likely derived from Persian لاجورد (lajvard) meaning "lapis lazuli" via Arabic لازوردي (lazuwardiyy) meaning "azure-coloured".
